“Great Seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We have been going to Englewood for years and this is the first we've heard of Cafe' 776. We have been missing out! The restaurant is nothing fancy, but has great fried (English batter style) seafood. The shrimp were fantastic! Enough to share the generous portions with very good prices. We will definitely be back next time we are in the area.

“As advertised!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Friends of ours raved about the fried shrimp here, so we had to give it a try. The cafe makes no bones about having informal decor and is tucked away in a strip mall area on Rte 776 (thus the name), but view and atmosphere were not what we were there for. It isn't often that I indulge in fried seafood, but this was worth every deep-fat-fried bite! We ordered a seafood platter, with scallops, shrimp, and fish, and it was all wonderful. There may have been a small fee for sharing (I don't honestly remember), and the portion was huge enough that we did well to finish it. Next time we go--and there WILL be a next time!--I'm going to chow down on a platter of nothing but the shrimp, because it was the star of the show. Our waitress was beyond efficient and pleasant, too.

“Worth going”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

You will not leave hungry. The portions are huge. Small place, but big on taste. Good selection as well.

“Be prepared to eat.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Café 776 is a splendid place to eat. This unique little restaurant has some of the best fried fish around. Don’t get me wrong, I also enjoy their other menu items as well. Be aware the portions are huge, so be prepared to eat.

The place is small and cozy (Rustic). You get paper towels instead of napkins, but that’s part of the small Florida dining experience. If you live nearby, or are visiting in the area you should try it out.

“Not to our liking!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013 via mobile

Had dinner at Cafe 776 this week. I was looking forward to their fish and shrimp combination platter. I eat fried fish a lot, but found the fish to be very greasy! The shrimp were very large and tasty, but would have been better with a little less batter. The waitress was very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. The portion sizes are very big with 3 large pieces of fish and 5 jumbo shrimp. Unfortunately, I can't recommend this restaurant given the quality level of the food was subpar.
